Nonviolence on National Land Day
Land Day, a day of commemoration of a day in 1976 when the Israeli government announced to expropriate thousands of dunams of Palestinian land. Land Day is an important annual day in the Palestinian national political calendar and marked by Palestinians all over the world.
On the 43rd Land Day Taghyeer launched a nonviolent initiative that describes the connection and the responsibility toward the land by planting olive and cactus trees in the Freedom Garden in the village of Twani. Together with the activists of our partner Youth of Sumud, 20 Taghyeer activists participated took full responsibility of maintaining these trees. Taghyeer believes in serving the land and its people instead of falling in argument on the expense of developing the land. We act responsibly to practice our belonging to the land by developing it and the living conditions of its people.
